The National Association of Evangelicals today jumped into the Hugo Chavez/George-Bush-is-the-Prince-of-Darkness fray, providing the following statement after what sounds like exhaustive research into the matter:
“NAE theologians and scholars have conducted a thorough exegetical study of the biblical texts concerning the person, disposition, and earthy manifestations of Satan (Beelzebub, Lucifer, Prince of Darkness),” according to Ted Haggard, President of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). “They have incontrovertible concluded that, contrary to the assertion of Hugo Chavez, President Bush is not the Devil.”
Haggard, the pastor of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, has not been as tongue-in-cheek over the documentary “Jesus Camp,” which features him in a less-than-flattering light.
